So why Graphic Design and not Fine Art? Simply put, Mum and Dad didn’t want me to be a poor starving artist and Graphic Design was a safer bet. And they were right. After all we lived in the newly independent Zimbabwe where it was hard enough just to find art materials let alone travel to art shows and with little or no resources for marketing and communicating like we have today, it was the right choice. My art always found a way into the Graphics and my ability to draw has served my design career very well. It was evident in the very first logo I designed for Carousel in Bulawayo to the extensive number of wine labels I had under my charge in New Zealand and every other discipline in between. Whether it’s branding, layout, 3D visualisation, illustration or hand-drawn typography, the art has always been there.
